My Challenge and Sketch Blog

Creatively Artsy is my CTMH blog and this is my FUN Blog.
Here is where I can use any products and just do my own thing. I started out with just one sketch challenge and now I'm hooked. I wish there were more hours in the day.

Spring Chicky - Sneak Peak

What a wonderful day!!!  It's my Birthday and I am so grateful to be able to celebrate another one. I've had so many wonderful Birthday wishes from friends and family and it just makes me feel Warm & Fuzzy inside.

My card today is a sneak peek at a new Digi Image from Fred She Said that will be released soon. Isn't it the cutest thing you've ever seen!!! 
Many of the cards I make I leave without a sentiment to leave my options open as to its use and this was one of them. I initially intended this to be an Easter Card but when it was finished, I thought it would make the cutest Baby Card. 

The inspiration for the design of the card came from a Sketch Challenge at Mojo Monday. I wanted to have this card done days ago, but I had surgery on my big toes on Thursday and had to have it elevated since then. This was really hard for me since I'm usually all over my craft room while I create. But, I met the deadline and that's all that matters.

I used Copic Markers to color the image and give my die cut leaves and flower more dimension. 

The papers are from a new paper pack from Close to my Heart called Mayberry .

The Hand Stitching was done with matching Embroidery Floss.
